Protecting your plants during April snow

As long as temperatures stay above 20 degrees, East Greenbush Hewitt’s Assistant Store Manager Dan Glission says snow is actually good for your plants.

He says the snow acts as an insulator and can protect some plants from freezing and provides extra moisture as is melts.

He says it’s not the snow that’s causes damage, but it’s actually frost.

With the forecast, Glisson says if you have daffodils this may be a good time to cut them and bring them in the house, along with some tender vegetation or hanging baskets.
